ROLL versus RSL: toss of a coin?
Ahmed M., Douek M.
The safety and benefits of radio-guided localization (RGL) versus wire-guided localization (WGL) surgery in the treatment of non-palpable breast cancers have been confirmed through several meta-analyses. RGL has become the standard of care in several institutions, although overall uptake has been slow. In view of this evidence supporting RGL, we believe that the future discussion is not of RGL versus WGL, but rather of what form of RGL will constitute best practice of care going forward. We therefore discuss the case for radio-guided occult lesion localization versus radioactive seed localization in the treatment of non-palpable breast cancers, is it really a toss of a coin?
